Description:

In this activity, learners will investigate how shorebirds and seabirds are extremely vulnerable to changes in their environment, whether human-induced or otherwise. Learners will use data collected in the Great Backyard Bird Count (GBBC) conducted by the Audubon Society and the Cornell Lab of Ornithology to calculate the population size of a shorebird or seabird in their state and throughout the US. Learners will compare findings, consider factors for population changes, and discuss the accuracy of the GBBC data.
